    Well, we have had Jazz since Xmas eve, he was 16 weeks old when we had him, so only a baby.

    He is always doing something new, and even though he is only 6 months old, he chatters for england!!  Along with Hello, alright, you ok, and what you doing, he is starting to whistle the adams family theme tune

    He is just so comical. We took in a safehouse bird, called Freddie a week ago, and i wasn't sure how Jazz would be, but he thinks he's rambo, puffing his feathers up and strutting his stuff, but the minute Freddie, who is a Senegal, goes by him, he flies off

    We also have 2 celestes, who i thought i would have to put in an aviary, as they are not human friendly at all, and when feeding time came they would go mad.  But after some time, and moving their cage, they aren't so scared. They even went in their bath for the first time.

    Oh well, hope you don't mind me going on, just thought i would let you guys know about my birds.

    It is always lovely to hear about everyone's happy birds. Don't apologize about telling us about them, we love it - but, as everyone says, we NEED pictures! LOL

    It's also lovely to hear your celestes are settling down - we know from Charlie CAG that some birds take some time to adjust.

    uh uh, I had a grey staying overnight a few days ago and he was evil!They are sneaky little swines, they look like vultures peering down at me, Sheilas martha is the worse, no matter how many times sheila says that bird doesnt bite, shes lying, several times she has sneaked up on me and bit me!I do have a bit of a soft spot for sheilas other grey though.

    How can you say Greys plot, they just think, they don't shout or scream. Once you know the expressions in their eyes you know exactly when to move out of the way or distract them from biting. So the white eye shadow is slightly overdone, it just makes it easy to read their eyes.

    Jazz will show lots of love Nicola, wings dropped down and upchucking for you. All the best with him and Feddie and pics where are the pics

    the pics will follow, and what do you mean they don't scream? Jazz has a mad half hour everyday, where hes screams and throws his foot toys all over the place lol. To be honest, it doesn't bother me, i find it quite amusing, hes like a 2 year old.!

    Well I am fast considering myself a grey person....having just survived a long spell with 3 toos screaming whilst 2 small children (grandkids) were also making noise and their mad dog was intent on annoying my 2 and I ran out of vodka!!!

     

    My little grey is a sweetie....ok he nips sometimes but at least he does nots scream like the toos

    It's only through understanding the normal can you better understand the abnormal.....

    Aww they are all so cure, bless!!!    I also agree with you as far as  screeching toos go, or even screeching patty's.

    The greys are so much easier on the old lugs lol.

    Even our scarlet doesnt match them in the noise department.

    aww i love my 2 greys lol to start with i was a bit scared when their eyes flashed ,my son said they looked like devil birds.

    both birds are now talking ,charlie is really funny when he starts ,his lastest words are helloooooooo ,tickle tickle .ooh boyo, ooh well,bye bye ,what !! what !! ,aye and mummys boy,if i am trying to talk to my hubby in the conseravatory ( where the greys live ) charlie will shout WHAT !! WHAT !! WHAT !! and gets really ratty if i dont speak to him..ive got 4 cats and when they walk past charlies cage he shouts hello to them,lol think he's puzzled why they dont stop and speak to him

    susie can be a bit of a wee madam,she repeats everything charlie says and does,she will have wee temper outburst if she does not get her own way lol she stamps her feet and screams,i am still in touch with the breeder i got my greys from,her son took one of susie's nest mates and his grey does the same..

    tammy the brolly is still a baby he's only 8mths,i only stopped feeding him about a month ago ,the vet said this was quite normal for a brolly and also said i could still be doing it at 18mth but also warned me it could be a comfort thing ,tammy  decided to stop himself ,he's a very clingy parrot and loves to hang from the neck of my niteshirt.. lol am left with a pile of handrearing food and 200 syringes but it wont got to waste cuz i am buying a blue and gold or a green winged macaw from the same breeder i got tammy from,

    ITS A MADHOUSE AT HAPPY VALLEY
